No doubt, the New Year is a time for fresh starts, new beginnings, and new resolutions. A ton of people trying out new things and searching for what they have never before sought out.
I recall Teevah – my overly ambitious and foodlum friend telling me about his plans of eating healthy this year, hitting the gym, starting a business this January, and setting the pace for his wedding (to a bride that he has not found). So you know, he has not lifted a finger towards achieving his long list of goals.
How are those resolutions of yours coming on? The truth is, setting small, achievable goals throughout the year instead of a singular, overwhelming goal in January helps you stick to these goals and maintain them. Well, I dey for you, and that is why I have put together a few tricks to achieve the best result in New Year’s Resolution.
Little Beginnings Matter, Start Small.
I’m sure you’ve heard that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Make resolutions that you can achieve. For example, if you’re committed to eating healthy this year, you should start by reducing your junk intake. Also, try replacing dessert with something else you enjoy, instead of changing your diet entirely else you see it as a form of punishment. Make your goal realistic rather than drastic.
Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself In Achieving New Year’s Resolution
In achieving your No-junk resolution, if you unintentionally eat pizza, do not give up. Don’t say, “I’ve failed this year. I will try again next year.” Minor missteps when reaching your goals are completely normal and OK. This new year, resolve to recover from your mistakes and get back on track.
Change One Habit at a Time
Bad habits aren’t formed in a day, and replacing them would certainly not happen in one day. It requires time. Don’t get ahead of yourself and assume that you can reassess everything in your life. Rather, work towards changing one thing at a time. Take one step at a time, and move one day after another.
Add ‘Support’ To Your New Year’s Resolution
The Buddy system works. It does. Having support helps you stay motivated and strengthens your resilience. So, if you can, find a like-minded pal to join you in your journey. Consider joining a support group such as a workout class at your gym or a group of co-workers quitting alcoholism. Sharing your struggles and successes with someone makes your journey much easier.
Strengthen Your Motivation
Everyone wakes up on Jan 1 with this confidence and high spirit to reach their New Year’s goals. This is because they haven’t faced any discomfort or temptation associated with attaining these set goals. Making this change might seem all too easy. For example, after dealing with the reality of staying away from your favorite junks, the motivation to keep your New Year’s resolution of no-junk may start to dwindle. When this happens, remind yourself exactly why you are doing what you are doing. Think about what you have to gain by achieving your goal. Finding sources of inspiration can keep you going when the going gets tough.
The annual New Year’s resolution ritual doesn’t have to end in disappointment. Oftentimes, the thin line between success and failure is in choosing the right goal and the way we go about it. In the end, the process matters.
